Sending Smiles

 This card was created using a sketch challenge and a color challenge.  This sketch is from 'CAS this Sketch' and the color challenge is from 'Double D' (black and white and a splash of color.  The paper is from Recollections.  I have a large pad of just black and white papers.  I cut that to size of the black card base.  I cut the flag out of white cs and then the two diamonds.  The smaller one I used a small hole punch to mimic the sketch and then ran the faux stitching in a white gel pen.  The sentiment was stamped in white embossing powder using a Hampton Arts rubber stamp.  I attached that to a salmon pink diamond and then used dimensional squares to raise it from the base.  I found some pink squares in my stash that have been there forever and added them to the bottom in a diamond direction.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may
